CWP trust position statement
Local provider of mental health services Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) welcomes the Prime Minister’s recently announced measures to provide greater mental health support nationally, particularly for children and young people.
At a local level, CWP is committed to improving awareness of mental health conditions, and has introduced a number of initiatives to educate and empower people in Cheshire and Wirral. This includes introducing mental health awareness training in many local schools and providing high quality support resources online.
We welcome any measures that will drive forward the national commitment towards parity of esteem between mental health and physical health services, as set out by the government Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.
